EKKA Royal Queensland Show
Experience Queensland's Best on Show
The Royal Queensland Show, or Ekka as it's most commonly known, is Queensland's largest annual event. Held over ten full days, the Brisbane Exhibition showcases life and achievements in the Sunshine State, bringing visitors from all across Queensland and Australia to the heart of Brisbane. The Ekka began 1876, attracting 17,000 visitors to the grounds and is now Queensland's most celebrated event. This year marks the 138th show and brings with it a variety of talent, culture, produce, fun and entertainment.
This year you can look forward to over 350 showbags in the Triple M Showbag Pavilion, a huge range of amusements and attractions down Sideshow Alley, a variety of daily entertainment and performances across the Brisbane Showgrounds and for the first time the much-loved night time entertainment program, EkkaNites, will run every night of show from 5pm - 8pm. Whether you're coming for the art, fashion, food, animals, performances, or amusements, you'll get to experience Queensland's Best on Show over two full weekends.*

PATIENT TRAVEL SUBSIDY SCHEME
posted 7 August 2014PATIENT TRAVEL SUBSIDY SCHEMEThe Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) provides financial assistance for travel and accommodation to patients, and in some cases their carers, to enable them to access essential specialist health services that are not available locally.
The PTSS is managed through Queensland public hospitals that accept, assess, approve and fund all PTSS applications and subsidies.
It is important to note that the PTSS is for Queensland residents only—residents of another state or territory will need to apply to the relevant jurisdiction for assistance.
The purpose of the PTSS is to assist patients, particularly rural and remote patients, who are required to travel more than 50 kilometres from their closest public hospital when the specialist service they require is not available at their closest public hospital.
